    As an Infantry vet I take his claims very seriously. Someone else posted his service history and claimed stolen valor. Not cool.
    You should post a link to "Someone else posted his service history and claimed stolen valor" ...I need to see this. Since you're such a believer, be unbiased and research. You'll quickly learn the truth, promise.

    As for stolen valor, research yourself, you might just show a little thanks for the sacrifice we've done (NOT AT ALL SAYING YOU SHOULD). But damn man, 14 years I've been at this and it's shit to hear "stolen valor" at all associated with us.
    Sft has not proven anything yet but keep trying.

But I'm happy people can share opinions like you just did. That's why I do what I do. Right or wrong, you CAN speak your mind. Thanks for letting me serve.

    As for the FCA engineers claim? The other company hasn't heard of Winols. You know, the software Bosch used to write the EDC17C79. Boggles my mind. Especially when I see the other company's simple logic, "do not open/do not inject/do not regen/do not throw CEL if disconnected". Whereas at SFT we ACTUALLY go deep into the ECU and delete 8-bit data relevant to what's being deleted.

    First people accused SFT of "stealing GDE tuning" because GDE started that rumor. It's been proven 100+ times over now that WAS A Lthe applicationIE. As for the other stuff..."stay tuned". Open your mind and recognize something great when you see it. Sure, be skeptical, "Trust but verify", right? Just don't believe what you "think" without a shred of evidence or even supporting documentation.
    Jimmy, are you constantly lying about GDE and our experience? WinOLS is a software tool to look at code. Bosch does not use WinOLS to write their software for the OEMs. That is funny. Bosch developed their software internally and sells it to other companies like FCA, GM and Ford, etc. We use several tools when developing tuning for the applications we work on. INCA is still our favorite. Map3D is very similar to WinOLS, heck you can even use notepad++. The software tools are technically irrelevant, it is how you set the maps that makes a difference. We prefer to test our changes in the lab with proper test equipment to verify cylinder pressure, temps, soot, and fuel economy. We also take trips to Davis Dam and Eisenhower pass to trailer testing using same criteria as the engineers for FCA. Cold weather testing is completed in Canada.

    I find it difficult to understand how you can come up with such a great tune without any form of lab testing, equipment or data. Peak firing pressure is the most important limiting factor on this engine, when does this occur on your tune and what if the value? Without this type of information, it seems shady.

    I was thinking the same thing. As a service member I understand the dark sense of humor and vulgarity of the veteran community (and participate in it heavily), However, it’s a business and not a bar, and seemed very unprofessional. Nevertheless I was curious as to what people have experienced with them. After reading these, I wholeheartedly intend to go with GDE after all of the reviews I’ve read, and as mentioned, I’d pay the extra money for good service.

    Have you actually seen the reviews? Compared? We've tuned people who had GDE. They sold their GDE ECU/TCM device for SFT. Easy OBD2, flash to stock in less than 2 min, ECU/TCM tune is less than their ECU tune, all the extras are free. 24/7 support. Exhaust smells like crap with GDE's supertune and smokes like a chimney (SFT Stage 2 does none of that).
    My GDE off road tuned truck with 218,000 miles is deleted and has never smoked.

    A lot of owners still have warranty and don't want to forfeit it by tuning via OBD2 as it's easily detectable at the dealer level.

    There is much information to be gained by reading these verbal confrontations. Makes it valuable for forum members, in my opinion. Getting a clean-running, reliable and hassle-free experience with the Ecodiesel seems to involve some kind of tune. So far GDE has been offering and supporting that. Consumers can benefit from this dialogue and maybe make decisions from reading this.

    Keep it positive and civil. We may all be the better for it.

    I tuned mine Dec of 2017 with GDE hot tune. Been in Canada had few Canadian cheaper options too. But went with the reputation and experience of GDE with VM diesel. Not saying others aren't good. But after spending 56k on the truck didn't make sense to save few hundred dollars and experiment anything. Great tune.

    I think Jimmy was referencing GDE's 'Super Tune' which they don't advertise and likely rarely sell. Not sure why he would reference it, but okay.

    Here is the first review I’ve read comparing GDE and SFT tunes. Screenshot taken from Facebook Ecodiesel Performance Group, I cropped the screenshot to exclude identifying info of OP.
